It's 2017 guys. Time to stop worrying if you have enough room on a CD to fit all the songs you like.

Who's worried? This is just a theoretical exercise. I'm well aware that the ideal arrangement is having all the songs I like dispersed across five CD's amongst a handful of other songs that I don't like as well.

"Facelift" definitely starts off strong and then takes a nosedive. It's pretty indisputably their weakest album, a kind of grotesque grunge-glam Frankenstein's monster that never really finds its sweet spot.

"Dirt" is pretty much AIC 101 -- I won't say I love every track, but this record is their essence, imitated by dozens, and probably contains more immediately satisfying songs than any other record they made.

The self-titled album is a dense, complex work that repays attentive listening -- the harmonies in particular, both between Staley and Cantrell and between the vocal melodies and chords, are among the most innovative and unusual I've ever heard, a high watermark for music theory within the grunge niche.

Both EP's are essential, not a bad song on either one.

All that said, I don't necessarily disagree that a good 20 song or so comp would pretty much serve my AIC needs from here on out. Definitely not a hits-only comp, though.


I'm going to walk back my classification of "Sap" as "essential" and reclassify it as "pretty okay" but I'm sticking by this. I could reduce AIC to a single disc compilation with minimal heartburn over what to cut; I don't think I could fill a second disc without crossing over into excess.


Probably a disc and a half for me, but I agree. They are an essential songs band, but the essentials are great

I don't know how great the essentials are anymore. I'd still say "Would?" is great. And maybe "Heaven Beside You". That's about it?

I’ve decided that Rotten Apple is the perfect song.

I absolutely fell in love with Jar of Flies when we were doing the grunge tournament last year. I probably hadn’t listened to that album in 15 years prior. It would be perfect if not for the last track which is a total dud.

I always liked AIC but can honestly say I preferred Mad Season in terms of Staley’s work.

Depending on my mood I could get behind this.
